Hyundai hopes to boost car sales with Avante N Line compact
Hyundai Motor Co. will launch its Elantra Avante N Line compact model with a 1.6-liter gasoline turbocharged engine in South Korea later this month as it strives to boost sales.
The Avante N Line doles out 204 horsepower and is available in variants of six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed double-clutch transmission.
According to Executive Vice President Thomas Schemera, who is in charge of Hyundai Motor Group's product division, the attractively priced new model features a more aggressive design with N Line's signature red accents.
The Elantra Avante N Line comes with a motorsport-patterned air intake, the company's signature cascading grille, larger brakes, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Hyundai's N Line, which sits its N brand and the general Hyundai brand, brings performance-inspired elements to base model vehicles.
